    I worked at Gildan Activewear full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The Charleston location of Gildan puts you in one of the best cities in the countries. The job is a secure one and they offer decent benefits.

    Cons

    The is little room for career advancement and no performance incentives. The Charleston location has recently consolidated and acquired a new brand, so the company culture is not defined yet.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Gildan Activewear.

    Interview Details

    Applied for this position through a recruiter and was given the green light to interview with the Director of the department over the phone. The next interview was also over the phone with another key person. Both interviews went well but unfortunately, this position was blocked from inviting anyone in for a face to face interview due to a VP who preferred candidates with background working directly with Walmart. Very disappointing to find this out after coming so far. Even though I had experience working with Walmart as a customer and provided Gildan with this experience, this position was never filled but restructured to place the candidate in Arkansas in order to accommodate Walmart. I was very disappointed with how this was handled and was really looking forward to an opportunity to work with this company.

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult questions because I had everything that this position required but due to a VP who had his own agenda, this position was changed while candidates were in the process of going through to the next phase.   Answer Question
    No Offer

    Easy Interview
